of the world. no act of violence shakes the resolve of the united states of america. [cheers and applause] i directed my administration to do whatever is necessary to protect all americans who are serving abroad. it's one of my highest priorities as president. we're also if contact with other governments to underscore that they've got an obligation to cooperate with us to protect our citizens. that's part of their job. now, i know that it's difficult sometimes seeing these disturbing images on television because our world is filled with serious challenges. this is a tumultuous time that we're in. but we can and we will meet those challenges if we stay true to who we are. and if we remind ourselves that we're different from other nations. we are, we're different not only because of the incredible landscape that god's given us, we're different because we're a nation that's bound together by a creed. we're not made up of a single tribe or single religion or a single race. we're a collection of people from all around the world who came here because of a certain set of principles, the idea that a
their anger about it they attacked the red cross. the following month the united states announced that u.s. drone strike had killed a libyan who was the second ranking guy in al qaeda central. a guy who went by the moniker al libi which means the libyan. the same group in benghazi responded immediately within 24 hours. they launched another attack that they filmed al qaeda-style, and they ultimately claimed credit for it. this time their target was the u.s. consulate in benghazi, the same u.s. consulate where christopher stevens was killed two nights ago. they hit the consulate with an ied, turned the attack into an al qaeda-style video type of propaganda. the same group hit a british envoy in benghazi with a car bomb. it had the hallmarks of al qaeda inspiration or al qaeda training. they filmed the incident, dropped leaflets. they tried to take as much credit as possible. then on the morning of september 11th, this week, al qaeda central put out a video calling for attacks to avenge that same killing of al libi the group in benghazi had avenged before when it was first announced he was

mohammed as blas fa mouse. we don't know if this person is base ed based in the united states and that's to whom the video is attributed as why the attacks were made on american properties abroad. we don't know if there were more complex reasons. this is not the first time that perceived criticism of islam has been reacted to violently in the muslim world. a florida pastor promoted what he was calling "burn a koran day." that spurred days of protests in afghanistan killing nine people there. in 2005 it was cartoons depict depicting the prophet mohammed. and u.s. service members accidentally burned copies of the koran in order to dispose of them. it sparked riots throughout afghanistan killing 30 people overall. but again, breaking news at this hour. a day of violent protests in libya and egypt. the american consulate and the american embassy in egypt. and reports still unconfirmed at this time that one american may have been killed at that consulate attack. this is an evolving story. we're still trying to get confirmation, but we'll update you as we learn more. that's tonight's breakin

in the united states, but around the world. >> four years into a presidency examine it's incomplete? the president is asking people just to be patient with him? look, charlie, the kind of recession we had, we should be bouncing out of it, creating jobs. we're not creating jobs at near the pace we could. >> shep: before today's back and forth, our latest fox news poll showed governor romney and congressman paul ryan leading the president and vice president by two points when it comes to the economy. of course, that is a statistical tie. let's get things started with team fox coverage. carl cameron, campaign guy, live in vermont with governor romney. and ed henry live here. obama campaign staffers are saying the incomplete comment isn't really anything new at all. >> that's because you're right. he has said this before, when interviewers asked him. what they're not mentioning is that after his first year in office, oprah winfrey asked him this question and at that time, the president did not say incomplete. he said he deserved a b plus and said if he passed health care reform valley,
in mourning as the u.s. diplomatic corps and, indeed, entire nation reels from an attack on the united states consulate in libya with four americans killed, including ambassador christopher stevens. the president visited the state department earlier today signing a book of condolence in honor of ambassador stevens. flags have been ordered at half-staff at white house and all public buildings for five days to honor the deceased. with 55 days until election, violence in libya and cairo has also become a flash point in the presidential campaign. providing a perfect case study in how these candidates respond to crisis. the president spoke in the rose garden this morning, alongside secretary of state hillary clinton. >> as americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because our people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases lay down their lives for it. today we mourn for more americans who represent the very best of the yat of america. we will not waiver in our commitment to see justice is done for this terrible act. make no mistake, justi

as president of the united states. they'd like to hear some specifics. >> well, i can tell them specifically what my policy looks like. i will not raise tacks on middle income folks. i will not lower the share of tacks paid by high-income individuals, and i will make sure that we bring down rates, we limit deductions and exemptions. >> what are we talking about, the mortgage deduction, the charitable deduction? >> the devil is in the details. the angel is in the policy which is creating more jobs. >> right. freedom, check. angels, check. throw in the towel, mr. president. this guy is going to obviously win. let's get right to our panel. in los angeles msnbc contributor matt miller. in minneapolis anna marie cox, correspondent for "the guardian" and in washington msnbc political analyst karen finney. anna, if i might begin with you, in listening to mitt romney's responses this weekend and looking at the diagnosticcle and statistical manual of mental illness he appears to be suffering two forms of delusion, grandiose delusion where the individual has an inflated view of himself and also perscu
in the united states. the reporting is of catherine herridge and she will have that coming up inside fox report. but, first, the war in afghanistan. a senior official or officer in the u.s.-led military alliance in afghanistan says the response to these insider attacks against our troops there will not result in a major shift in the exit strategy. so-called green on blue attacks have killed at least 51 coalition troops this year. today, the pentagon announced temporary move as they call it to stop most u.s. and nato troops from working side by side with their afghan forces. today an australian brigadier general deputy chief of staff for the coalition in afghanistan criticism that this could change the overall exit strategy for the war. >> i think it's going the smash the trust bond in the theater between us and them. and i don't think the temporary measures and what i think is pretty prudent response to a -- is going to change or damage the model that we have adopted for the campaign. >> shepard: afghan policemen and soldiers are scheduled to take over all security operations. we have to train
to win and distance themselves from this guy who is, as i say, plainly not fit to be in the united states senate, given some of his views. but it is possible, as jim vandehei said, it's possible he could win this race. and it's clear that a lot of republicans and the republican establishment now looking at the math are thinking about coming back in. i think the republican senatorial committee is very likely to put money into this race. i think the polls will tighten. as horrific as it will be to many people not just on the left but in the middle of the electorate, i think there's a reasonable chance he could win this race. >> not only do i agree with that, take a look, joe, at what roy blunt did. he is moving up in leadership, and he came out and supported akin yesterday. so that is -- >> the senator from michigan. >> yeah, that's the leading indicator. that tells you that the republican committee is going to go full in, and they see this as their way to regain control, and it's all about regaining control. and i can tell you that some of the very people now supporting him are republicans
, the united states gives egypt more than $1.5 million in annual economic and military aid. pennsylvania's highest court told a lower court judge to reconsider his decision to uphold that state's controversial voter i.d. law. the proposed law requires every voter in the battle ground state to show photo identification before casting a ballot. opponents claim the law discriminates against lower income americans, but government officials say it would crack down against cases of election fraud. today pennsylvania supreme court ruled the lower court judge has two weeks to defend his ruling that allows the law to stand. keep in mind, other states are facing similar legal fights with election day 49 days away. >>> a judge says arizona can immediately start enforcing the most controversial parts of its immigration law. the section that requires cops to check somebody's immigration status if the cop suspects the person for another reason and suspects he or she is in the country illegally. u.s. supreme court upheld that part of the law. but opponents challenged it on other grounds. they say they'
's exotic, grew up outside of the united states and yes, by the way, he is black. but this is -- this goes beyond that, because it really is -- i just think there's an edge to this one that we haven't seen. >> dana, you were just saying, that given all the attacks during the convention, the republican convention next week, it's not been of any great benefit to mitt romney. today we learn that the romney and ryan campaign are running robo calls and guess what's in the robo call, the president wants to raid medicare for $716 million and he's going to tax wheelchairs and pacemakers. i mean, if it failed during their convention, why do they keep doing this? >> and i expect next they'll come back again with that jamesville gm plant which has been discredited and that whole line about the simpson-bowles that paul ryan trotted out last week. so, you know, that doesn't seem to be working. you know, when you take something like the jamesville case that's flat wrong, that's one thing. gene does make an important case that welfare argument is more pernicious because it seems designed to divide people
is not a chal llenge that can be contained. that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> the president devoted a large portion of his speech to the arab spring and its fallout. just two weeks after the attacks that killed ambassador chris stevens, the president promised even as we will bring the killers to justice, he will not back down from supporting democracy nor from protecting freedom of speech. indeed, the president extended his spirited defense of free expression even to remarks against himself. >> as president of our country and commander in chief of our military, i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. [ applause ] >> i wonder who he's been talking about there. let's get right to our panel now. in washington dana mill bank, political columnist for "the washington post." in west palm beach, florida, msnbc political analyst professor michael eric dyson who we have persuaded to leave his mojito by the poolside and in washington, political analyst david corn.

to help us stop iran. if we don't trust america to help us and the president of the united states to keep his word, we have to take action on our own. the kind of relationship netanyahu and romney have, they can get on the phone and talk to each other and talk it through. the worst of all situation would be a war against iran and israel attacks iran's nuclear weapons site and iran retaliates and the united states is drawn in, nobody wins that war. the important relationship is one that's there and been there for 40 years. >> kelly: all right. kt mcfarland, always appreciate your perception and get a picture and put it up next to yours. >> you've got it. >> jamie: kt is all navy, trust me. >> kelly: i was army. >> jamie: disappointing jobs picture, raising more fears over our fragile u.s. economy. how wall street took that news and why some are speculating that help could soon be on the way. here is a hint. the fed. [bell ringing] [ rosa ] i'm rosa and i quit smoking with chantix. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that
the assassination of the united states ambassador and three other americans. that seems to contradict what we've been hearing from u.s. officials, including the u.s. ambassador to the noon noon who blamed the attack on protests over the anti-muslim video. >> the best assessment we have today is that, in fact, this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack; that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> i don't think we know enough. we're going to continue to assess. >> based on what we know now and knew at the time, we have no evidence of a preplanned or premeditated attack. >> shep: today the white house press secretary, jay carney, said it is, i think, self-evident, that what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. but he also pointed to what a top u.s. counter terror official said yet, quote, we have no information at this point to suggest that this is a significantly preplanned attack, but this was the result of opportunism, taking advantage of and exploiting what was happening as a result of the r
conservative governor in the united states. florida, i understand it's a swinstate in presidential election, but it's a swing state when you have,ou know guys running like mitt romney and john mccain and bob dole. a tough conservative wins florida. >> what was the impact of that ad -- i couldn't believe when he picked ryan, the democrats ran an ad of some guy whoooke yaus granny off the edge of a cliff in a wheelchair. it was subtle. >> it was subtle but that doesn't work because marco rubio got elected by promising. the one big date that he had with charlie cristndhe deatppt, talked about raising social security to 70. bob graham, one of the most popular democratic politicians in florida history, always talked about the need of possly raising the retirement age for social security and medicare. therhe are a lot smarter than politicians think. so no, it wasn't that good. let's talk some more about ike because, again, i think the guy is slowly evolving into my favorite president. talk abo- you say he's a war hero whoated war. and i guess ike, after korea, u.s. serviceman wasn't killed? >> ye
that a candidate for president of the united states would go behind closed doors and declare to a group of wealthy don't nors that half the american people view themselves as victims, entitled to handouts and are unwilling to take personal responsibility for their lives. hard to serve as president for all americans when you have disdainfully written off half the nation. that from campaign manager jim mess send that. how different is this if at all. that president obama sad at private event that americans were clinging to their guns or religion? >> i don't think it is all that different at all at the time the remarks got a lot of attention. people wondered if it would change the trajectory of the campaign as the kind of people that were supporting obama at the time, they're going to hear this, oh, my god they won't like him. as it turned out didn't bother them all that much. he did very well with working class voters, working class whites, people in pennsylvania and ohio he was supposedly going to offend. given the state of the economy, given how people feel about the president, those opinions are
in columbus. >> that's why i'm running for a second term as president of the united states. >> four more years! f four more years! >> hold on a second. hold on a second. i want you to know though because some of you may not have been paying attention at the convention because, you know, you were still thinking about michelle and how good she was. [ cheers and applause ] or maybe you're still talking about president clinton and how he broke it down. [ cheers and applause ] well, i want everybody to be clear, the path i'm offering isn't quick or easy. it's going to take more than a few years to deal with all the challenges that we face. but let me tell you something, when i hear the other side talking about how the nation is in decline, i tell them, you must not be getting out much. because this is america. and we've still got the best workers in the world and the best entrepreneurs in the world and the best scientists and researchers in the world and the best colleges and universities in the world, and there's not a country on earth that wouldn't trade places with us right now. so i'm confident
political debates in the united states. >> it sure has. we begin with the race for the white house as it's now a sprint. only 59 days are left until the election. president obama was hoping for a post convention bounce. but the disappointing unemployment numbers may get in the way of that. both president obama and mitt romney are back on the campaign trail today and up employment remains at the top of the agenda. nancy cordes is traveling with the president in seminole, florida. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, anthony. the president will be campaigning all weekend long in vote rich central florida while governor romney is in virginia. both candidates are talking about that new jobs report. as you might imagine, the two men see it very differently. the president hit the campaign trail with vice president biden and their wives for the first time this campaign season. he told voters in iowa city that the drop in the unemployment rate from 8.3% to 8.1 was a good sign. >> we can do better. we need to create jobs even faster. we need to fill the hole left by this recessi
the office of president of the united states would so dismiss all of the people he is sworn to serve if he should be fortunate, which certainly i believe he won't, to succeed in this quest. it is really disheartening to hear him say that. >> congressman, you worked alongside dr. edward zeigler who, of course, developed the highly effective head start program. i had the great privilege of interviewing dr. zeigler. that has been so crucial in helping children in challenging family circumstances, but given mr. romney's contempt for half the population, i guess it's no surprise that his running mate, paul ryan, his running mate's budget would slash head start to pieces. >> it would slash head start. it slashes college education and tuition. it slashes medicaid as well, which also hurts the very seniors also that they claim they're going to protect. this cynical nature of this has had even the bishops joining with the nuns and saying that this is an immoral budget that he has put forward because of how it decimates the poorest amongst us. i mean, dr. zeigler would be amazed by all of this, and
a resume-builder. he would love to be president of the united states. he doesn't want to really give service to the country. he doesn't want to give a contribution to the country. he doesn't want to protect the people. he wants the title, to be president. and that goes down as a part of who and what his resume was all about when he passed this way, as they say, in my church. the fact of the matter is, mitt romney seems not to be in touch with ordinary people who work hard every day, people who earn income. you know, the earned income tax credit, which allows a working family not to pay taxes, is a republican program. >> absolutely. was milton friedman's idea. it was paul ryan's guru who recommended that as an ideal incentive for the working poor. and yet now they treat these people with contempt. >> absolutely. i mean, ronald reagan said it was the best anti-poverty program going when he expanded the program after signed into law by president ford. so these are real good, make work pay kind of programs that romney seemed to be disdainful of. i don't quite understand that except he ma
